Spring has Sprung

I decided to push the limits of the new bike and ride hard it hard. Yes both tires were off the ground at some points. Many times the single track was dual tracked as the front was going this way and the rear was doing its own thing. Ya those stock tires are really not up to the job for this type of riding, but hell it was fun!

Then the fun ended... A buddy with a trailer came to the rescue.

Some more from Easter

So this is just a few. As I post these, I am sitting in Dorrigo @ Juans Smallest Motorcycle Museum.

I have enjoyed some awesome food and coffee, and tried to find just a few to post before I head off again.





Me on Friday about 9km out of Glen Innes. PBee, I could have used that Safari Tank. I read your post while sitting on the side of the road and just chuckled away to myself. I should have had enough, but got caught in huge storm over Gwydir, and chewed my fuel....
An awesome local dude who I flagged down, actually went home, grabbed his jerry and drove back out to me. I have little faith in Mankind, but everyone once in a while, someone will throw a spanner in my cynicism.


Random photo this morning on Glen Innes - Ebor Rd. Just got back on to the tarmac. HUGE Cop Trap in Ebor this morning.


Waterfall Way to Dorrigo. Messing around with some FX setting on my phone.


Juan's Cafe Del Fuego - Dorrigo. Sunday morning. HUNGRY!!


This is how to post some photos - Curry Lamb Pie, Spinach & Fetta Pie, Quince Tart & a great Capp in a mug.

This is my first time through here since '09, and as I sit here with this amazing food I just think to myself "Why???!!!???"

Some new roads for me from here... Back of the Tarmac.

CHAOS OUT!

Brought it home 1/19 in the back of a truck. Still haven't been able to ride it yet, too much salt on the roads.
Maybe rain this weekend will help and I can get on it.
It's killing me waiting.

Since the Tiger is new to me, I spend a lot of time hunting up dirt trails that hopefully won't land me in jail and generally exploring off road and modifying my dirt riding technique. On my 83 GS750, I never looked for dirt, but now, I'm finding my "standard" ride is littered with trails, legal of course. A few miles of Class II rocky DRY dirt roads and the Tiger is right at home and I make it to POI #1, Oxford Airport.



So me being me, I of course start looking for more, bigger, better, and not to be disappointed, I see another trail behind the guardrail. Lets just say you're all 100% correct and the stock tires are not mud tires. Luckily I was able to pin it and walk it up out of the mud.



Since it was close to 7PM I did the smart thing, for once, and got out of there before I did something stupid. So much for burning off the stock tires before I get a more dirt oriented set.

Same thing here. Surprised how many legal (cough cough) trais I find myself on. Replacing the stockers today with Heidenau rear and TKC80 front

That's why I love this type of bike. It opens new opportunities and new horizons.

Great combo, think you'll like it pretty well.

I'd probly do a Scorp Rally front for dirt though, and keep the Scorp Trail for road, or even get a K60 front for 50/50. The front is so easy to change out.

Watch pressure in the TKC, they are quite susceptible to pinch flats. Fairly soft sidewall which makes them handle good on road, but a little soft for off. Most keep 30lbs or more in them. A rally I'd run at 22-25. A lot stiffer carcass, more bite, resists wash-outs much better.
